The Stealth lube is for the ball diff, not the bearings. It is still available, part #6591. But any ball diff grease works. I normally use Arrowmax 210211 because it's easy to find and the tube is easier for me to use.
For bearings, I use Lucas fishing reel oil. Fishing reel bearing oil is easy to find at Walmart, Academy, Field and Stream, etc. Any of them are fine. Just don't use the "Hot Sauce" types, as they require frequent service and application.
Always looking for new and interesting ways to waste money.
Thanks. I should’ve specified, the fronts aren’t glued and can party easily. The rears are another story. I will look up the oven method and give that a try, then acetone for the remaining residue. Thanks for the leads on tires. As it happens, I’m also planning to rebuild a Tamaya Stadium Blitzer for my boys, one that I had growing up. Good to know for those tires.
Wow, thanks @juiced coupe. As a kid, I never liked it. I was mainly because I couldn’t change the gearing to keep up with my brother’s gold pan. We only got it because we when we phoned in the tower hobbies, they were out of RC10Ts, so my dad called an audible. What a privileged childhood…sheesh.
I’m mainly wondering about he mechanical SC, and where to mount an esc. But I’m sure the gearbox is I need of a rebuild, and I don’t have the original motor either….should be a fun learning experience
You guys have been helpful putting my old RC10 back together. I have replaced worn/damaged parts on the suspension and have taken everything apart and cleaned and rebuilt. I am planning on racing it at my track and need advice on what would be a...
Judging from the pics of that track, 10x3 to 8X1
My ESC will only work with over 13T. I also was thinking I might need something a little mild so I can get a little longer runtime.
With the advent of brushless, newer battery technology, and speed controls....I'm excited to get my RC10 running again. Currently have stock brush motor and gearing. Not real interested in taking the car apart but just getting her back up and...
A system pulled from an RTR kit like the one you mentioned would be a good choice. I would go with some lipos and a lipo charger from someone like Hobby King. You did not mention if you car had the 6 gear or stealth transmission. Either way a...
I picked up an rc10 from a friend for free. He just sent me the transmitter the other day, so I was able to test it out a bit.
It has a hi-tec transmitter and reciever. The transmitter works, but it has no antenna, and there is no spring on the...
Tear a strip of paper about twice the width of your pinion. Pull the paper into the spur/pinion gears by turning the spur. Adjust gear mesh and pull out paper. You should be able to remove paper without tearing if gears are set up properly.
Hey all i have a 1987 rc10 goldpan picked it up off my lil nephew and was thinking of doing a lil winter rebuild with my son but it doesnt have a body or wing ,,and i know this has been probably asked a million times but for all the replacement...
Dang, Those foams held up well! :shock: Nice looking project. :D
Thanks,,,foams are on their way to the UK but yeahh they were in good shape and hopefully they last another 20+ years :)
I remember playing and wrecking this care when I was seven 30 years later I have a seven year old and decided him how to drive RC cars so I'm updating the electronics that stoped working for now. Here is a pic from before I took any original parts...
That cleaned up nicely! These cars are so much fun as brushless runners!
I put my old RC10 back together and took it to a race last weekend and ended up breaking a rear hub carrier. I wanted to know if I could use this to replace it:
I also looked at these other replacement parts from RPM and wanted to know if these...
do you have the short arms? if so i would just upgrade to the longer arms and replace the tie rods. other than that the best place to find replacement short arms would be ebay of from one of the member here. honestly you will like the rpm arms you...
